The year following Book Agent Denise Stinson’s fellowship, she joined the staff of Life Magazine, writing regular features and working as a special correspondent.

Denise Stinson Literary Agent’s clients include such bestselling authors as Pearl Cleage, Queen Latifah, and Omar Tyree. Her success as an agent coincided with an enormous growth in African-American publishing, launched by the phenomenal success of Teri McMillan’s Waiting to Exhale in 1992 and followed by a proliferation of novels written by and for African-Americans. Within this market, Literary Agent Denise Stinson noticed an underserved readership – black Christians – and found her calling. She started Walk Worthy Press in 1997 to publish fiction and nonfiction aimed at black Christians, especially women. By 2006 her company had blossomed into the largest publisher of black Christian books and had expanded into a ministry.
